Toy Trains Wants To Recreate Your Childhood Train Sets In VR

Toy Trains wants to recreate your childhood with VR model trains, arriving on Quest and Steam next month.

Created by Something Random, a team composed of former Superhot developers, Toy Trains aims to invoke childhood nostalgia in a similar approach to Crumbling, only with track-building instead of action figures. Placing your board on a lounge table, Toy Trains takes us to "a world where vintage toys and forgotten treasures spring to life."

Something Random describes Toy Trains as a relaxed experience. The trailer shows you picking up pieces from a book to place on the table, including wagons, locomotives and different rails. The team also promises a "nostalgic storyline" with open-ended challenges, and the trailer shows a forest fire that needs putting out. You can also decorate the land by placing water, trees and more around the tracks.

Toy Trains arrives on January 16 on Steam, PSVR 2 and the Meta Quest platform, with a free PC VR demo launching on December 4 for Steam VR Fest. As for the Pico version, Something Random informed UploadVR that's still in development but a release date remains unconfirmed.
